Opposition to Harvard University’s anal sex workshop is just conservative homophobia and prejudice, according to the event organizer.
This year, Harvard’s annual Sex Week included a workshop called “ What What in the Butt: Anal Sex 101,” aimed at teaching “how to do [anal sex] well.” The event received national media attention from outlets that criticized and questioned the academic value and integrity of the workshop.
“The conservative backlash speaks to the latent homophobia that society thinks so often it has gotten over, and has not,” Kirin Gupta, one of the event organizers, told MTV. “It speaks to these residual prejudices that people [have] when faced with a reality they’re not willing to acknowledge or respect.”
“I would say that the idea America has a crumbling morality, that we have some kind of morality that’s standing, is built on repressive patriarchal conceptions of sex and sexuality,” Gupta said. “So if that’s crumbling, then let it crumble.”
